The AI Renaissance: how is data and AI shaping the human
The world is undergoing a data and AI renaissance. Tools such as ChatGPT, Midjourney, and DALL-E have pushed data and artificial intelligence to the forefront of public discourse and captured the world’s imagination – but what do these advancements mean for humanity’s future?
Data Summit 2023 will welcome thought leaders, scientists, journalists, artists, and everyone in between to discuss how data and AI shape our lives. From culture to net zero, privacy to disinformation, religion to space travel, no corner of the human experience will remain unexplored as we unravel the secrets, unveil the possibilities, and challenge the conventional wisdom that governs our lives.

“Data-driven innovation has the potential to deliver great benefits to Scottish businesses and our economy more widely. Scotland has a highly skilled workforce with great strengths in areas such as data and digital, and investors are increasingly seeing us as an attractive location for growing their business. I’m very pleased that DataFest is bringing these opportunities to people across the country and bringing an international audience to Edinburgh for another successful Data Summit”Nicola Sturgeon – former First Minister of Scotland
